"As an oncologist treating a difficult and often fatal group of cancers, I witness firsthand as patients and their ‘villages’ cope with the diagnosis. So many decisions, so much emotion, and everyone does it a bit differently. No one path will serve; instead it is a truly individual course we choose. Sean Murphy’s book is a great new resource for patients and families, and frankly for us all."

- Dr. John Marshall, Chief, Oncology at Georgetown Hospital
